Periodontal Disease is a disease of the gums which ranges in severity to simple inflammation to severe damage to soft tissues and bone that supports the teeth. Untreated gingivitis leads to Periodontal Disease. Symptoms are:
• Bad breath
• Red or swollen gums
• Tender or bleeding gums
• Loose teeth
• Sensitive teeth
• Pain while chewing
• Receding gums
HOW IS PERIODONTAL DISEASE DIAGNOSED?
A dentistry specialist will diagnose the condition during a regular dental examination. The doctor may require an x-ray to see if there is any bone loss.
HOW IS PERIODONTAL DISEASE TREATED?
The main goal of treatment is to control the infection. The number and types of treatment will vary, depending on the extent of the gum disease. Any type of treatment requires that the patient keep up good daily care at home. The doctor may also suggest changing certain behaviors, such as quitting smoking, as a way to improve treatment outcome. The treatment of periodontal disease begins with the removal of subgingival calculus (tartar) and biofilm deposits. A dental hygienist procedure called scaling and root planing is the common first step in addressing periodontal problems, which seeks to remove calculus by mechanically scraping it from tooth surfaces.
